2023 Equity Forum Pre-Reception

November 1, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Detroit Future City will host an intimate, ticketed pre-event reception the night before the Economic Equity Forum at Ima Izakaya (located at 2100 Michigan Ave) in Corktown. This intimate gathering intends to foster connections and dialogue with local leaders invested in the future of Detroit.

We are excited to host our first ever pre-event reception which aims to celebrate DFC’s work to advance initiatives that grow the number of resilient, thriving neighborhoods and disrupt systemic racism, poverty, and other inequities to grow household income and wealth for Black Detroiters and other Detroiters of color. This intimate, ticketed pre-event reception will take place the night before DFC’s annual equity forum event.

Join us and our event special guests for cocktails, connections, and conversation!
